No fresh water rinse container - there was a bucket that my housing didn't
fit in.  Forgot to take the camera lens cap off on one dive, almost opened
the housing up at 80 fsw, but then thought about it - not a good idea!

Good - only two divers, except for one other on one day.
- long dives  - some interesting wildlife - fast boat - some nice
swimthroughs and drift diving - liked the hotel (lots of room) - good
restaurants - GREAT cenote dives, esp. Taj Mahal - the Yucatan ruins - no
problems with the rental car - only got lost once - no snow.
Bad - blown out two days - strong current/downwelling that forced us in a
lot of swimthroughs (for safety) - currents reversed (saw the same scenery
twice) - swam through "sandstorms" - Cozumel was more
urban/populated than we expected - driving is not a "wonderful"
adventure - some roads are pretty bad - had to leave and go home.
I take too many clothes.
